Copyright for cartoonists

May 18, 2011 in News

A post for our UK readers because today the Hargreaves Review into the law of copyright is published.

This is important because copyright governs how people who sell expressions of an idea for profit, such as cartoonists, may license that work for sale. Professor Ian Hargreaves’ review and its proposals deal with many of the issues raised by the changes the internet has made to selling imagery for print and online distribution.

You can read or download the report (PDF) here.

The Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation and our colleagues in the Creators’ Rights Alliance submitted feedback to the review and you can read that here.
